About book Food Matters: A Guide To Conscious Eating With More Than 75 Recipes (2008)

Liked the common sense approach, but didn't feel it added much new info to the nutrition conversation. The info about carbs seemed really out of date also, as it didn't talk about the impact on blood sugar/insulin. I really liked the recipe for spinach and sweet potato salad. Also, he makes his diet sound so easy...but most people have deeper issues with food and know already the basics this author is suggesting- it's more putting it into practice that's the problem. I found this eh. This book reads like a beginner's guide to eating better food and making better choices. Bittman lays out a lot of information in an easy-to-follow format that will help the reader understand the realities of our food decisions and the impact they have on the greater world.I really enjoyed this book. For the past few years we have made a conscious effort to enjoy more locally produced foods, less meat, and this year we are starting a huge garden. The goal is to make better decisions that improve health, taste delicious, and reduce the footprint of our food. While all of this is important, Bittman also reminds the reader that we don't need to shun our favorites. This isn't a diet, but rather a way of living that will inevitably have moments where a store bought chocolate cake seems like a great idea. I recommend this book even if you are well on your way to conscious eating. There are great recipes in the back as well as an extensive list of foods that a "conscious cook" should keep in his or her kitchen. Bittman is an enjoyable writer who brings a heavy dose of reality to his writing on healthy living.
